|ChiswickW4.com breaches 5,000 barrier|
Europe's largest community portal newsletter passes new milestone
More than one in four homes in Chiswick now receive the weekly free e-mail newsletter from ChiswickW4.com. Recently the 5,000th subscriber signed up giving it the largest distribution for any newsletter of its kind in Europe.
The site as a whole recently surpassed 20,000 users in a week suggesting that weekly usage by Chiswick households could be well over 50%
To mark the landmark a prize was given to the person who referred the 5000th subscriber. This was a fantastic DVD set worth over £100. Martin Scorsese Presents…The Blues is a series of seven original films by world famous directors who share a passion for blues music including Clint Eastwood, Mike Figgis and Wim Wenders. The competition was run in association with MVC on Chiswick High Road.
Congratulations to Janice Jones of Staveley Gardens who referred the 5000th subscriber.
